The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 11

I am over half way through the Ultimate Reset!!!!!!

You won’t believe something I’ve decided since about day 7…..drinking coffee MIGHT be a thing of the past for me!!??!! I know. I’m like significantly known for being everything coffee. But once I got over my withdrawals I realized how much I naturally feel better without it!?!?

Aside from green tea or my unicorn blood — I am also going to stay away from anything caffeinated at this point.  Ive fallen in love with Teeccino though!!

I’ve also resolved for the next 6 months I’m going to plan out in FULL DETAIL & PREP allllll of my meals eating at least 3-5 vegan meals each week.

You never think it’s possible but ITS TOTALLY POSSIBLE for you too!! The first 5 days were hairy I won’t lie.  Not because of what I could or could not eat, but the feelings associated to not eating my emotions, the actual aches from detoxing, lack of energy while my body was releasing years of toxins and the pains of change.

Overall the food is good minus a few choices like seaweed, tempeh, and mashed garbanzo beans….I am full and not hungry throughout most of the day (as long as I go to bed between 9-10 when I start dreaming about what’s in he kitchen I could nibble.)

So Day 11 was the first day I was tip top shape for the entire day!  Feeling full of energy and life, clear thinking and patient!

My breakfast is pretty much the same for the next 2 weeks! They give you other options such as Miso soup, avocado and mashed chick peas but like I said….. not my ideal breakfast! Fresh fruit will do me just fine!!!  I am in a routine of making myself one and the boys love it too! I read today that fruit in the morning is cleansing and easy to digest for the body!

Tomorrow I need to get to the store for distilled water and more fruit.

Here’s the Skinny on Day  11:

Wake up w/20 oz of distilled water (Mineralize added) and continue drinking this ALL day just not until 30 mins after a meal for digestion purposes!

Take Supplements (Optimize & Detox)

Wait 30 Minutes

Breakfast (fruit bowl above) Try to pick low glycemic and in season organic fruit

Wait at least 2 hours. (I waited 3)

Take Supplements again

Wait 30 min

Lunch

I don’t know that it’s allowed but I usually end up combining whatever mix of food combos they have set up. For instance today was cucumber tomato salad, 1 cup quinoa, and 1/4 avocado…so I just mixed it all in. It looks messy but tasted really great! Instead of the dressing listed (that was mostly the same ingredients as the greek dressing — I just used what I already had made of that) but here’s the recipe:

Cucumber & Tomato Salad courtesy of the Ultimate Reset

(Makes 1 Serving)

2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar

1 tsp. balsamic vinegar

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 medium cucumber, partially peeled, cut lengthwise then sliced

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

1 Tbsp. red onion, chopped

2 Tbsp fresh herbs (I used parsley & basil), chopped

Himalayan salt to taste (optional)

Herbal seasoning (optional)

Combine red wine & balsamic vinegars, lemon juice, and oil in a small bowl, mix well. Set aside. Combine cucumber, tomatoes, onion, parsley, basil, salt, and seasoning in a large bowl, mix well. Drizzle dressing over cucumber mixture; toss gently.

Wait at least 2 hours (I waited 3)

Take your power greens

Wait 30 minutes

Optional Snack – I had vanilla vegan Shako

Wait 2 hours

Take Supplements (Optimize, Detox & Soothe)

Wait 30 min

Dinner

Hearty Miso Soup

Hearty Vegetable Miso Soup

makes 1 serving

Ingredients:

• 1 t. extra virgin olive oil or safflower oil

• 2 T. finely chopped yellow onion

• 1 t. finely chopped garlic

• 1 small carrot, cut in thin diagonal slices

• 1 small celery stalk, cut in thin diagonal slices

• ½ t. peeled and finely grated ginger (I omitted – I hate ginger like a lot)

• 2 C. water

• ¼ C. broccoli florets

• 2 T. chopped fresh green beans (I only had asparagus)

• ¼ C. shredded Napa cabbage or bok choy

• 1 T. wakame seaweed (optional…It makes me hate life so I don’t add this either haha)

• ¼ t. sesame oil

• 1 T. sliced green onion

• 1 T. miso paste mixed with 2 T. hot water (also optional)

Directions:

1. Heat EVOO in soup pot on medium heat.

2. Add onion, garlic, ginger, carrot, and celery and saute for 5 minutes.

3. Add water and simmer on low for 20 minutes until veggies are tender.

4. Add broccoli, beans, cabbage, and seaweed.

5. Stir and simmer until tender but not overcooked; broccoli and beans should remain crisp.

6. Remove from heat and add sesame oil, green onion, and miso mixture.

1/4 cup quinoa & lemon greens (greens sautéed in extra virgin olive oil & squeeze of lemon)

Finished off the night with chocolate Teeccino in place of coffee or a cheat and I have to say it makes giving up coffee for good a breeze!!

Dude, I’m so ready to be laser beam focused on my goals to lean out before my 2 rounds of 21 Day Fix Extreme  in prep for 80 Day Obsession!!!!

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 4

The hardest day yet. And I cheated a little. But I’m not even mad about it. Here’s why.


It was an extra serving of fruit when I could have had wine or chocolate cake instead.

Not gonna beat around the bush. I was moments away from a cheat allllll day. Cinnamon rolls. Coffee. Toast. Sushi. Spaghetti. Even cereal was tempting me. I wanted to shove anything I could into my face to drown out the feeling of deprivation. But here’s the dumb part. It’s me having my own temper tantrum. There’s so much dang food I can’t even finish most of it in one sitting!! And if I wasn’t such a bad prepper this week and had the foods ready to go it wouldn’t even be this hard. It’s because while I’m assembling a dish of all veggies I’m having to make spaghetti for the kids and it’s torture.
Tom was supposed to be in charge of all the food for the family but got the chance to take our oldest to see a show in Vegas so while he’s gone I’m left to my own survival feeding the babes and trying not to sacrifice my results by cheating.

If you don’t have support at home to get through this it will be much harder to make it the full 21 days if I’m being full disclosure. I thought Tom would help kind of distract from things I can’t have but so far he just grabs a beer and drinks it right in front of me or starts brewing coffee and asks me if I want any. Very very hard when I’m trying to get through this without cheating. And 4 days into 21 I think is my breaking point. The 4.8 weight loss my first day helped me truck through day 2 & 3 but now as I’m sitting with a bloated belly and a little constipation I’m less like a force to be wreckoned with and more like a wet absorbent sponge.

Here’s the Skinny on Day 4:

Wake up w/20 oz of distilled water (Mineralize added) and continue drinking this ALL day just not until 30 mins after a meal for digestion purposes!

Take Supplements (Optimize)

Wait 30 Minutes

Breakfast!

Fresh fruit plate with yogurt. Use whatever fruit is seasonal and fresh in your area (for example: 1 cup mixed berries, 1 kiwifruit, 1/2 cup sliced peaches, 1/2 cup cubed honeydew melon) and 3/4 cup organic plain yogurt sweetened with 1/2 tsp pure maple syrup or a pinch of stevia.

Wait at least 2 hours. (I waited 3)

Take Supplements again

Wait 30 min

Lunch – again I improvised this meal. I really have no intention of going to the trouble to make sushi rolls that don’t taste like a California roll or Crunch roll LOL.

Bomb ass Lentil-Lime Salad

1 cup cooked green or brown lentils

1 medium carrot, shredded

1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro (I subbed italian parsley)

1 1/2 tsp sesame oil

2 Tbsp fresh lime juice (I used 2 whole limes bc I loooove lime)

Braggs liquid aminos

Himaylayn salt

1/2 tsp cumin (optional – I didn’t do it)

Herbal seasoning (also didn’t add it – I’ve noticed spices a lot more I think as my tastebuds actually get clear and I am realizing I don’t really like things like cumin or cilantro!? And the only herb seasoning I have has both LOL)

Combine it all in a bowl, mix, and cover. Marinate in the fridge for a couple hours before serving.

And instead of the Nori rolls I made a big bowl of 1 shredded medium carrot, 8 broccoli florets, and 6 asparagus spears steamed and with a dash of Braggs liquid aminos.

Wait at least 2 hours (I waited 3)
Take your power greens (I mixed mine into my vegan chocolate Shako and water today. My son had football playoffs and I was in a pinch to get out the door.)

Wait 30 Minutes

Optional Snack- I made a baggie of jicama, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and red bell pepper. Usually at a football game I’m eating cheez-its, sunflower seeds, and drinking a wine spritzer so this was a BIG change for me and the mental game was rough seeing everyone else enjoying all of the above. Not to mention I let little man have McDonalds today…I don’t even like McD’s but just the thought of some fattening salt laden fries and a diet coke seems soooo comforting. I just kept drinking my mineralized water and telling myself I need this. I need the mental clarity. I need the detox. I need the help pushing through my emotional eating.


Wait 2 hours

Take Supplements (Optimize & Soothe)

Wait 30 min

Dinner – another modification because I didn’t prep what needed to be ready. The meal called for stir-fried veggies, cucumber and tomato salad, 3/4 cup quinoa, and 1 serving of Nori Gomasio. None of which I had ready to make so I substituted with another veggie bowl like I had for lunch, 3/4 cup brown rice, and a cup of organic veggie broth with green onions.

I am positive we are supposed to eat exactly to plan and I don’t intend to flub through the rest of this. I love being ready and feeling like I’m following along like I’m supposed to so that I get true results from this program. I’ve been in a shit mood and I always tend to sabotage myself when I don’t plan ahead. So today I’m dedicating the time in the kitchen to have everything ready ahead of time that I need!

I’m going to go LIVE on My Facebook Page today to prep the quinoa salad, roasted root medley, zucchini-cashew soup, and more microgreen salads.

I saw this on Pinterest yesterday and I was like HOW fitting is this for what’s going on in my mind right now beating old demons and emotional eating habits through these 21 days.

Pre-Workout & Personal Development

What do you do to make this your best life?
.
I have this burning desire to constantly GROW so I’ve made it a habit to spend at least 30 minutes a day in gratitude and soaking up a good audio book before I start working out to get myself in the right mindset to take on the day!
.
Many people simply let life HAPPEN to them and REACT IN DEFENSE… Instead make a clear plan on where you want to go, develop new habits & take ACTION to grow into the person you need to become in order to live the life you desire! .
Become the STAR QUARTERBACK of your life and throw yourself in the direction of your dreams by establishing a game plan to get you to the end zone! Even if life happens & blocks you or even tackles you and you lose ground… Good habits, a clear vision and a fierce determination will cause you to get back up, learn from your misstep and get back to the game!‪#‎yousototallyGOTthis‬

If you’re not doing this — I challenge you to set your alarm 30 mins earlier to get it in!

As I approach my 3rd year as a health coach, I can’t help but think of how MUCH has changed by that one leap of faith.
.
.
Physically
Mentally
Emotionally
Spiritually. . .

And, FINANCIALLY.

.
I try my best to share why I think the coaching opportunity is such a GIFT; especially if you are looking at this from a BUSINESS perspective. Why let someone else decide what you are WORTH per HOUR? If you would have told me a few years back that I could make in one hour what used to take me 3-4 serving shifts at my high end restaurant job I wouldn’t have believed you. I’m just an ordinary girl. No special talents. I’ve failed at every single thing I’ve ever attempted in my life. Being the underdog is my comfort zone. I’m an introvert. And, I’ve always been terrible with numbers.

.
.
.
But this past month has been a great example of the power of duplication and how earning potential and the CULTURE of our Team leads to solid income.
.
-We don’t post links.
-We don’t “sell.”
-We work hard to share our TESTIMONY and are true believers that income, rank and success are natural byproducts when you SERVE others rather than SELL products.

–> It’s certainly not the “only” way or the most “popular” way, but it’s OUR way. And it WORKS. <—
.
.
The end of July and beginning of August was a BUSY week for our family…

-Aden’s birthday.
-Back to School prep and shopping.
-Tom having a jam packed work schedule.
-Catching up on summer work.
-Heading off for those final summertime excursions
——————

💜
Our accountability and coach training groups were in HIGH gear and LIVES were changing.
💛
Our Team was EXPLODING with growth. Woman and men who saw the potential and who knew that short term sacrifice would lead to long term gain.
💚
Coaches were growing families, pursuing their passions and serving others.
————————-
And because of THIS Team effort, incomes continued to grow.

Coaches came HOME to their families.

Mortgages, utilities, car payments, debt, savings and vacations were continuing to be funded by the PASSION of this Team.

— And, I earned my paycheck that if you equated it to a “per hour” scale (and I don’t want to rub anyone the wrong way but if you’re reading this, you know my heart). In that one hours worth of work (I could squeeze in for the week) I got paid $683.00 within that ONE, incredibly busy family week. It’s not the biggest check I’ve ever received as a coach but it was the MOST money I’ve ever earned in one hours time! And that’s not to say I don’t work more than that on an average #coachlife week but, where can you decide to make your own schedule everyday and earn an income whether you are present or not!?

It may be a LOT to some, and little to others…but to ME it was a TRUE representation that I’m building something I can do even while:

I stay true to OUR values.
I am home with ALL my children.
I am able to continue to contribute to OUR personal family goals and activities.
And that you CAN build, and earn and serve others all while being completely in charge of your own schedule and activities!
.
.
Next week I will begin searching for a new group of coach interns and I’d love to answer ALL your Questions about Coaching. You will also have access to all of my personal experiences as a Coach and while this is NOT an overnight success business nor a posting links marketing company…
.
It will require hard work and resiliency.
Dedication and selflessness.
And staying true to the culture of OUR Team.
.
BUT, if you’ve been seeking a change in life, coaching can be anything YOU want it to be. You set the pace and I will match your speed.

Pineapple Chicken Kabobs over rice & veggies

Pineapple Chicken Kabobs over rice & veggies

pineapple chicken kabobs pic

This recipe was easy, quick & super delish!

What you need:

Skewers

One whole pineapple

2 large chicken breasts (cut into chunks)

2 yellow bell peppers (seeded and sliced into squarish shapes)

Salt & Pepper

Dried Parsley (optional)

Sesame seeds (optional)

Extra virgin olive oil

Very Teriyaki Sauce

Brown rice

Bok Choy variety stir fry veggies

Instructions:

Cook your brown rice according to package directions.

Season your chicken to taste with salt, pepper, parsley, and sesame Seeds.

Slide your chicken, bell pepper, and pineapple in an order pleasing to you on each skewer <<just be sure to leave enough room between so that each item can cook properly>>.

Lay the kabobs out on a cookie sheet and drizzle lightly with olive oil.

BBQ your kabobs for 15-20 minutes turning every 5 mins or so until your chicken no longer drips and your peppers/pineapple look roasted.

While the kabobs are Q’ing and almost done stir together over medium heat a drizzle of olive oil, 1/4 cup water, and a drizzle of very teriyaki sauce with your stir fry veggies. I like my veggies crunchy so I only stir and saute for 3-4 minutes.

Plate everything together and you have a meal that’s kitchen to table in 30 minutes or less! And ooohhh sooooo healthy!!! Comment below if you try this recipe! I’d love to know your feedback!
